This report summarizes our preliminary efforts to delineate, at controlled experimentation, the impact of art, and artistic aesthetics, on the way we assess science. Our results suggest that the analytic-synthetic axis of perceptual cognitive handling of the scientific object is unaffected by its artistic non-conventional contextualization, while cognitive abstraction, positive emotions and aesthetic impressions are favoured. Implications to philosophical foundations of the Cartesian scientific method are considered.
